Welcome to r/flexibility! Here are some resources that will answer many of the common questions we get.

Where do I start?
  • Starting To Stretch is a basic stretching routine for overall flexibility. Beginners should start there.

  • Make sure to check out our official F.A.Q.

  • Experiencing pain in your neck/shoulder/back/hips/groin legs/knees/ankles when you run/walk/sit/squat/stretch? Go see a doctor! Stretching may not be the solution to your pain!

Have a "stupid" question and are afraid to ask it? (Or don't want to make a whole thread for it?) Well, feel free to ask away in this thread! There's no such thing as a stupid question. This is also a great opportunity for the rest of the community to help each other out.

Guidelines:

  • As always, read the FAQ to make sure your question isn't answered already.

  • If you're looking for the Motivational Month threads from the past, they are all here in our Wiki.

  • You can also use the search bar to see if an answer to your question exists already.

  • We are not medical professionals. If something hurts and it doesn't go away within a week's rest, see one!

Enjoy!

In my main goal of achieving perfect pike, I have some days where I feel I'm really moving forward, and then I get the days where it's more or less the same. I do tend to get frustrated. I get tempted to push myself harder than I should.


But looking back on everything, I could barely touch my toes a month ago. Now I can palm the ground after a good warmup. I can also touch the floor with my fingertips first thing in the morning. Never could do that before.


I'm enjoying the journey and I have to remember just to keep at it and the big progress will come. I'll have forward days and backward days and stagnant days. But that's part of the process.


I love stretching now. It's my favorite time of the day. Does that make me weird lol?
